Are you attending the University of Waterloo? Do you know about the Stand Up To Stigma SPOTLIGHT event? Just in case, here are the details.

Stand Up To Stigma SPOTLIGHT roster

 

Stand Up To Stigma is an incredible organization on campus that is dedicated to eradicating stigmas from university life. We have a long way to go, but together we can make a huge impact towards this important goal.

Stand Up To Stigma’s SPOTLIGHT event is one of their many annual events that is focused on shinning a light on stigmas so they can’t hide in the darkness any longer. The more we talk, the more we understand. The more we understand, the better we can bring about positive change.

The SPOTLIGHT event will take place in the Student Life Centre’s Great Hall located at 200 University Ave. W. in Waterloo, from noon – 3:30pm.

There will be an art exhibit, special guest speakers, and access to informative handouts.

Yours truly will be sharing my story from 12:30pm – 1:00pm. I will also be sure to have a few copies of my newly published book Breathe, and important handouts from the Waterloo Region Suicide Prevention Council.

Will you be going to this event? I hope to see you there. Remember, wherever you are you too can shine a SPOTLIGHT on stigmas, and more importantly, on hope.
